|In a study at the University of Alabama in **********, researchers compared the amount of folate in the red blood cells of 294 women with cervical dysplasia with that of women without the condition. Then they checked with the women to see whether they smoked, used oral contraceptives, had given birth or had an HPV infection. And in each case, they found that the risk factor was more likely to be associated with dysplasia if the women had low levels of folate. Women with low levels of folate who were infected with HPV, for example, were five times more likely to develop dysplasia than women who were loaded with folate.|
|In a study conducted at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City, researchers found that lycopene, a carotenoid found in tomatoes, has a direct effect on the development of cervical dysplasia. Studies are ongoing, says Prabhudas R. Palan, Ph.D., assistant professor of obstetrics and gynecology at Albert Einstein, who is leading the study. But right now it looks as though the more tomatoes you eat, the less cervical dysplasia you get.|
|Since as far back as 1981, statistically significant differences in levels of vitamins A and C and beta carotene have been noted between women with cervical dysplasia and healthy controls (Romney SL et al 1981; Wassertheil-Smoller S et al 1981). Other nutrients studied in cervical dysplasia include folate, zinc, and vitamins B6, B12, and E. Changes in diet and nutritional supplementation can reduce the odds of developing cervical cancer (Marshall K 2003; Gagandeep et al 2003; Friedman M et al 2005).|
|CONCLUSIONS: This investigation provides evidence that thiamin, riboflavin, folate, and vitamin B12 may play a protective role in cervical carcinogenesis.|
|Although I'm sure that no amount of evidence will convince someone who is determined to believe otherwise, I am posting all this information regarding the importance of nutrition in preventing cervical dysplasia and cancer for those who are actually interested in learning. It may actually help someone remain confident in their decision not to vaccinate. Much of the evidence not only shows that a diet high in certain nutrients can prevent dysplasia, but that it can also cure it. Hope it helps someone out there.|

|This vaccine will undoubtedly be universally recommended . . . and vaccines universally recommended and placed on the CDC immunization schedule have historically led to daycare/school/college mandates. The only vaccine not yet on state mandate lists is the influenza vaccine . . . and it's only a matter of time on that one because it just went on the list.
This "cancer vaccine" will be no different. It may take a few years, but it will be mandated. Not only mandated, but the indication age will probably be lowered to infancy in the years to come . . . ya know, so they can get 'em while their young before they start to have sex . . . like the Hep. B vax at birth. You haven't noticed how they progessively keep approving lower indication ages on these vaxes? The latest was Hep. A lowered to 12 months and now Menactra is set to be lowered to age 2. Hep A vaccine is slowly but surely making the rounds on state mandate lists (there's a bill in the NY legislature trying to mandate Hep A along with pneumoccocal vaccine . . . with many states following suit if they don't have these two mandated already).
This vaccine will be mandated ultimately . . . it's happened with every vaccine on the list. ACIP recommendation is a mere stepping stone to state-by-state mandation.

Can anyone find the ingredients to the new Gardasil (merck) or Ceravix (GSK) ? I've searched and searched.
I see that Merck applied for a BLA and blocked the lead ingredients from being publicized.
When can we find out WHAT is in that shot. We all know it's more than just water and the weakened virus.
I see that Merck's Gardasil uses a traditional alum adjuvant whereas GSK's version will be a pumped up type of adjuvant called AS04. It is a new molecule made from the aluminum salts.
Questions I'd like the answers to :
* Is the vaccine a live attenuated virus , or is it inactivated ?
* What culture did they use to grow the vaccine in ? (monkey , rabbit , dog , human fetal , etc...)
* What are the "inactive" ingredients ? (formaldehyde , thimersol , aluminum)
|As for myself, considering the incestuous relationships between pharmaceutical companies, university researchers and the FDA/ Health Canada, rampant cooking of statistics, skewed research methods and financial incentive behind vaccine production and statistically low risk, I wouldn't even consider this vaccine.|
